COOK CLASS are Super Star Learners!
The Owl and the Pussycat by Edward Lear is our topic for this term. Read the poem at home and perhaps think about how it make you feel? What puzzles you? Can you imagine that piggy? Where is the land where the Bong Tree grows?
Homework – Homework will be given out on Friday. There will be spellings for your child to practise and they will have the opportunity to assess their learning on the following Friday.
Reading – Children are responsible for changing their reading book and recording their new book in their reading record. Children should be reading for at least 15 minutes at home every day. Please write in your child’s reading record if you read with them.
Maths – We will be sending out a login for your child to access RMEasimaths soon. More information will follow. The expectation in Year 2 is that your child can count in 2s, 5s and 10s in and out of order. They should also know their number bonds to 20. There is a club run at lunchtime where children can practise these skills.
PE - We have PE on Mondays and Thursdays. Please make sure your child has a PE kit in school which includes trainers/plimsolls, jogging bottoms, shorts and a t-shirt. If your child has long hair, please tie it back on these days. If your child wears earrings, we would be grateful if these could be removed at home on PE days.
Water Bottles - To help make sure your child is drinking enough each day they could bring in a water bottle to keep on our lunch time trolley. They can access this between breaks and at lunch.
Dates for your diary – See you back at school with a smile on Thursday, 5th January 2017!
Another fantastic website that we have been using to help us to learn is Brain POP Jnr. We love learning with Annie and Moby! There are loads of fun videos, games and activities that teach us about lots of different things.
**This is an American website and therefore some lessons (e.g. money) may not be suitable for us in England. However, this is a fabulous website that our children can learn a lot from.
You can access Brain Pop Jnr from home by clicking on the picture below and logging in.
